Definitions for "Through Bill of Lading"
A single bill of lading covering the inland transport of a cargo from the point of origin to that of final delivery to the ultimate consignee, when two or more modes of transportation are used. Ocean shipments however usually require two separate documents. i.e. an Inland bill of lading for the domestic carriage and an Ocean bill of lading for international carriage. Through bills of lading cannot, therefore, be used. See also Air Waybill. Français: Connaissement direct Español: Conocimiento de embarque directo
